The Johnny Mathis Collection is a compilation album by American pop singer Johnny Mathis that was released in the UK in 1976 by Hallmark and Pickwick Records in arrangement with the CBS Records division of Columbia.[2] This is a two-LP set, with the first LP being what is actually a reissue of the singer's 1961 compilation Portrait of Johnny and the second being 10 tracks from three other albums: 1959's Faithfully, 1967's Up, Up and Away and 1968's Those Were the Days.

On June 30, 1977, the British Phonographic Industry awarded the collection with Gold certification for sales of 100,000 units in the UK, and Platinum certification for 300,000 units was awarded on January 17, 1978, making this album the only vinyl Mathis release to sell that many copies in the region.[1]
